Plans to turn shuttered Alexandria Theater into public swimming pool


A San Francisco movie theater closed for more than a decade, could reopen its doors again soon.

After closing its doors 15 years ago, the Alexandria Theater on Geary Boulevard in San Francisco’s Richmond District, is now a crumbling shadow of its former self. The historic theater closed its doors in 2004. Now the owners are preparing to reopen the theater as a 40,000 square foot complex. But, instead of movies, swimming will be the entertainment of choice.

Plans call for two pools, a learning center and offices on a third floor.
